Didn't get the job...
Well, I am assuming I did not get the job at the drug treatment place because they never called me in for a 2nd interview and the position starts on Monday. I'm not used to not getting a job I applied for. It seems that I almost always get hired.
So I have to ask myself, why? What is different about me? Is it that I am older? Overweight? Too experienced? I don't know. I used to do hiring and I am not sure if I would hire myself. I don't exude that youthful enthusiasm and energy I once had. I mean, I smiled, said all the right things and had a really nice conversation with the woman, but something about me must have been lacking. Kinda bums me out.
Keven Update: He's out of jail, back in Cornerstone and this time is in a program called "Monitored Out Patient" which means he has to be out of the house from 8-5 (working) then goes to meetings from 6-9:30 with his group. Unfortunately his group this time is all older people that drink rather than younger people who do heroin. Its a bit disappointing but when he asked if he could switch groups they said our insurance didn't cover the other one. That kind of ticked me off....like our insurance company is going to know which group he's in? They all meet at the same time and place, why not stick him in with his peers? He's more accepting of it than I am (a very good sign).
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
